NWO: Central Banks Imposing Biometric ID in Developing Countries First*

NWO: Central Banks Imposing Biometric ID in Developing Countries First*

The easiest way to get their hands on your money, and control everything you do…

ByMelissa Melton

You think the big brother surveillance state is getting creepy here in America, check out what central banks are doing in other countries.

Via All Africa:

In line with the ongoing initiative of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and the Bankers’ Committee (comprising Chief Executives of the nation’s deposit money banks), banks across the country are to begin capturing of customer biometric data as part of Bank Verification Numbers (BVN).

The rollout of the BVN solution for the identification and verification of bank customers is expected to begin in 1,000 selected bank branches across Lagos, as a prelude to a nationwide rollout.

This is in alignment with the phased approach adopted in executing the three-tiered Know-Your-Customer (KYC) and cashless policy of the CBN.

That’s right. In addition to the Central Bank of Nigeria’s new cashless policy — which aims at “reducing” the amount of paper money and coins circulating in the economy and encouraging more electronic transactions by adding a ‘cash handling charge’ — a new biometric program will require customers to sign up for a Bank Verification Number and present themselves at any branch for fingerprinting (all 10 fingers), facial image capture, and more.

CBN Governor Lamido Sanusi launched the new biometric registration at the head office on behalf of the Bankers’ Committee in February. Punch quoted Sanusi as saying,

“We have launched the Bank Verification Number today, the timetable suggests that within 18 months, every customer would have been registered.  This is a day that we would remember for many reasons, not for where we are but where we are likely to get from here. Nobody can steal this identity except he or she steals my fingers…”

Apparently this guy hasn’t seen a whole lot of science fiction films.

The nation of India has instituted similar measures, recently rolling out a massive biometric identity system which aims to collect the iris and fingerprints of every single one of its over a billion citizens, linked to a 12-digit identity number.

Never mind that iris scanners and fingerprint IDs have all been easily fooled. Someone has been reading a lot of the Bible lately, specifically Revelations.

These types of measures are being rolled out in developing nations first, but don’t worry, they’ll make their way here soon enough.

Eventually, no one will be able to buy or sell anything without giving up their biometrics to big brother and his database.

U.S. Bank and Wells Fargo are already piloting voice recognition biometrics as I type this.

Muslimah Takes Down Leading Islamaphobe*

Muslimah Takes Down Leading Islamaphobe*

By Ben Armbruster

A Muslim-American leader on Sunday criticized one of the right wing’s top traffickers of Islamophobia for exaggerating the threat that Muslims pose to the United States and for regularly linking the religion to terrorism.

Anti-Muslim activist Brigitte Gabriel made news last week for berating a Muslim student at an event hosted by a conservative think-tank. “People like you need to be put in their place,” Gabriel later said to the student.

Linda Sarsour of the Arab American Association of New York — and recently recognized as a “Champion of Change” by the White House — challenged Gabriel on CNN’s Reliable Sources.

“Ms. Gabriel speaks out of two sides of her mouth,” she said.

“In one breath she’ll say the West must support moderate Muslims, and the moderate Muslims must speak out against terrorism and in the same breath she’ll say peaceful Muslims are irrelevant.”

Sarsour also took issue with Gabriel’s repeated attempts to link all Muslims with extremism:

SARSOUR: Ms. Gabriel needs to make up her mind when it comes to what is radical Islam. When asked by Australian news, she said a radical Muslim is someone who prays five times a day, someone who believes in the world of the Koran, which is the Muslim holy book, someone who believes the prophet may peace be on him is a perfect man. That’s basically every Muslim.

So, I have no idea what she means. Where is the room for moderate Islam?

“I want you to understand that if you want to combat terrorism you need to work within the Muslim community. You need to make sure that we are part of that and the, quote, ‘moderate’ Muslims that you’re talking about, which are almost every Muslim living here in this country, need to be part of this discussion,” Sarsour concluded.

“But to alienate the Muslim community, create them as the other and to start making over exaggerations about these potential attacks that haven’t happened is not the way that you combat terrorism.”

Gabriel — who once said that any practicing Muslim cannot be a loyal citizen of the United States — was also criticized by a Fox News contributor on Friday during Sean Hannity’s anti-Islam “investigation” called “Radical Muslims on the March.”

“You, ma’am, I think are the most dangerous person in society,” Fox contributor Tamara Holder told Gabriel on Hannty’s show.

“I think that you are the most dangerous person because to say things like moderate Muslims supposedly are not terrorists, or supposedly are not dangerous — the majority of Muslims in this country and in this world are safe, loving people who want peace.”

CAP’s 2011 report “Fear, Inc.” identified Gabriel as one of the “the main players who conjure up and spread misinformation about American Muslims and Islam in the United States.”

New Wikileaks Confirm Global Corporate Tyranny*

New Wikileaks Confirm Global Corporate Tyranny*

By Mike Ludwig

6f9ed-cap041-bmpEmbattled WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange announced last Wednesday from London the publication of a secret draft text of the Trade in Services Agreement (TISA), a controversial global trade agreement said to make it easier for corporations to make profits and operate with impunity across borders.

The whistleblower and transparency website WikiLeaks published on Thursday the secret draft text of the Trade in Services Agreement (TISA) Financial Services Annex, a controversial global trade agreement promoted by the United States and European Union that covers 50 countries and is opposed by global trade unions and anti-globalization activists.

Activists expect the TISA deal to promote privatization of public services in countries across the globe, and WikiLeaks said the secrecy surrounding the trade negotiations exceeds that of even the controversial Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA) that has made headlines in the past year.

Demonstrations erupted in Geneva in April as diplomats met in secret for the sixth round of negotiations over TISA, which would cover international trade in a wide range of service industries ranging from finance and telecommunications to transportation and even local utilities such as water. Protesters demanded that the draft text be released, but it has remained secret until now.

Public Services International (PSI), a global trade union federating public service workers in 150 countries, has reported that TISA threatens to allow multinational corporations to permanently privatize vital public services such as healthcare and transportation in countries across the world.

“This agreement is all about making it easier for corporations to make profits and operate with impunity across borders,” said PSI General Secretary Rosa Pavanelli in response to the leak.

“The aim of public services should not be to make profits for large multinational corporations. Ensuring that failed privatizations can never be reversed is free-market ideology gone mad.”

The leak comes two years to the day that WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange began hiding in the Ecuadorian embassy in London after the country offered him asylum to evade prosecution in the United States for publishing secret US government documents. Assange is also wanted in Sweden for questioning over sexual assault allegations lodged against him in 2010.

The secrecy of the TISA negotiations “exceeds even the controversial Trans-Pacific Partner Agreement (TPPA) and runs counter to moves in the WTO towards greater openness,” wrote Jane Kelsey, a law professor at the University of Auckland in New Zealand who analyzed the leaked documents on behalf of Wikileaks, which leaked portions of the TPPA in the past.

The same governments that installed the failed global trade deregulation models in the World Trade Organization that lead to the global financial meltdown are now promoting TISA, according to Kelsey and WikiLeaks.

Kelsey’s analysis also confirms the concerns of trade unions like PSI that the TISA agreement would lock governments into and extend their current levels of deregulation and trade liberalization, thus preventing governments from returning public services into public hands when privatizations fail and establishing greater regulations to protect the environment and workers safety.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which supports privatization and global trade deregulation, has said that the “payoff from TISA could be huge” for domestic service industry firms and presents “a once-in-a-generation opportunity to tear down barriers to international trade.”

The Chamber has recommended that TISA “eliminate regulatory inconsistencies” and ensure that private companies are not put at a disadvantage when they compete with “state-owned enterprises.”

While TISA negotiations are being held outside the WTO framework, the countries involved are WTO members, and the negotiations are being crafted to be compatible with existing global trade services agreements.

The current negotiating countries include Australia, Canada, Chile, Taiwan, Colombia, Costa Rica, Hong Kong, Iceland, Israel, Japan, Liechtenstein, Mexico, New Zealand, Norway, Pakistan, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, South Korea, Switzerland, Turkey, the United States and the European Union’s 28 member states.

The TISA countries will meet again for a seventh round of negotiations in Geneva from June 23 to 27.

Leaks Put Spotlight on Assange

WikiLeaks officials announced the TISA leaks on Wednesday during a press call from London featuring embattled Wikileaks publisher Julian Assange.

Assange has been living in the Ecuadorian embassy since the country accepted his request for asylum two years ago out of fear that he would be extradited to the United States to face criminal charges for publishing thousands of U.S. military documents and diplomatic cablesin 2010.

eliteAssange and his supporters fear that, if he leaves the embassy, he will be arrested and brought to Sweden to face questioning from prosecutors over sexual assault allegations made by two women in 2010. From Sweden, his attorneys said, Assange would be given a “one-way ticket” to the United States.

Assange’s attorneys said they have invited Swedish prosecutors to question him at the embassy in London or over Skype, but the prosecutors have refused.

“But for that bear in the room in the United States, we would not be in that situation,” said Michael Ratner, a WikiLeaks attorney from the United States.

New information on the Swedish case against Assange will be revealed next week, Assange’s legal council said, but they declined to elaborate on the nature of the information.

For the past two years, London police have kept the embassy under surveillance and stood ready to arrest Assange should he leave the building, which has cost British taxpayers $10 million, according to reports.

Assange said he continues to be the target of “the largest ever criminal investigation into a publisher by the U.S. Department of Justice,” and demanded that Attorney General Eric Holder end its investigation of WikiLeaks or resign.

He also warned President Obama about leaving office with a legacy that includes “extrajudicial killings, including those of Americans” and chilling free speech by targeting more journalists for investigation than “all other presidents combined.”

“It is against the stated principles of the United States, and, I believe, the values supported by its people, to have a four-year criminal investigation against a publisher,” Assange said.

“The ongoing existence of that investigation produces a chilling effect, not just on internet-based publishers, but all publishers.”

While hiding in the embassy, Assange said he has been busy working as a trustee for the Courage Foundation, a defense fund for NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden.

When asked about the conditions of his exile in the embassy, Assange pointed out that Chelsea Manning, the U.S. intelligence analyst who was sentenced to 35 years in prison last year for leaking secret U.S. military documents to WikiLeaks, was in much more difficult circumstances. Assange said Manning’s “ongoing situation” remains a “big concern.”

The government leaks provided by Manning and Snowden gave journalists and the world an invaluable and unprecedented look into U.S. military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, U.S. foreign policy and the U.S. government’s vast worldwide intelligence network, but the federal government contends the leaks compromised national security.

South Africa’s Platinum Miners Resume Work*

The devastating five-month strike in South Africa’s platinum industry came to an end Tuesday, as the world’s three largest producers and the union leading the strife signed a wage deal.

[Rothschild’s] Anglo American Platinum (or Amplats), Impala Platinum (JSE:IMP) and Lonmin (LON:LMI), said about 70,000 members of the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (AMCU) will return to work on Wednesday, ending South Africa’s longest and costliest strike. The labour action reportedly caused producers to lose US$2.26 billion in revenue while workers lost nearly $1 billion in unpaid salaries.

Lonmin, the smallest of the three producers, said restructuring was “inevitable” to ensure its business remained afloat, especially while industrial demand for platinum in vehicle catalytic converters remained subdued.

The chief executives of the three mining firms said in a joint statement that the road ahead remains a challenging one, adding that it will take time for their operations to resume full production.

The settlements differ slightly by company and staff category. However the basic salaries of the lowest-paid workers will broadly rise by 1,000 rand a month over three years

The settlements differ slightly by company and staff category. However the basic salaries of the lowest-paid workers will broadly rise by 1,000 rand a month over three years and staff will also receive additional benefits such as pension, housing and health insurance.

Workers will also receive back pay within seven days of returning to their jobs.

As a result of the strike, South Africa’s economy shrank 0.6% in the first quarter from a year earlier, the first quarterly contraction since 2009.  And mining analysts from J.P. Morgan estimated Monday that a total of 1.1 million ounces, or about 15% of global annual mined production, had been lost to date.

South Africa, Africa’s largest economy, holds about 80% of the world’s known platinum reserves, accounting for about 70% of global output.
